Food & Wine has announced its picks for the 10 Best New Chefs eight-and-a-half hours before the beginning of the party at which they’re supposed to be announced. I feel all anticipation ebbing away, except for the fact that it’s a really fun party.
You’ll get a full report tomorrow, but for now, here are the winners:
April Bloomfield of The Spotted Pig, New York City
Gabriel Bremer of Salts, Cambridge, Mass.
Steve Corry of Five Fifty-Five, Portland, Maine
Matthew Dillon of Sitka & Spruce, Seattle
Gavin Kaysen of El Bizcocho, San Diego
Johnny Monis of Komi, Washington, D.C.
Sean O’Brien of Myth, San Francisco, Calif.
Gabriel Rucker of Le Pigeon, Portland, Ore.
Ian Schnoebelen of Iris, New Orleans, La.
Paul Virant of Vie, Western Springs, Ill.
